Ascent Trip Report

So I want to do Brushy Mountain coming up from Porter's creek. I went up the Brush Mt trail and got to Trillium Gap. For some reason, I turned left and first went up Mt LeConte. I passed the lodge and went to the main summit. I then headed back to Trillium Gap and then did Brushy Mt. It was neat hiking through a tunnel of the scrub oak type of trees. Once on the summit, make sure to get a good view of Mt Guyot. You will be disappointed in the good view of Pigeon Forge. I then headed back down to Porter's Creek trailhead.
